I can help you with the DANE implementation if you are interested.
[ I provided the DANE verification library for the NIST site that
does DANE verification of HTTPS sites. ]

Please do not assign negative scores to server support for ADH and
AECDH ciphersuites, even HTTPS servers should support these (to
discover clients that do, and perhaps offer them reduced access to
sensitive content). It is a common mistake to equate aNULL use in
servers with aNULL use in clients. As you might have discerned,
I am not a fan of sloppy analysis by "analogy", and not shy about
refuting it.
